Now that I'm inside and thawed, just call me unfrozen caveman social worker.

Haven't blogged in a bit...but was seriously driven by operation HD.

So, here is the status

taxes done...check

furniture moved...check

acquire new cable box...check

do internet research and visit stores...check

purchase tv...CHECK!

Yes I'm the proud owner of my very own 40 inch Samsung LCD HD-TV and I'm never leaving my house again.

Here she is...

I also finished mom's "Scottish Highland" Socks that Rock--they are even blocked

The next big thing is Gus' birthday and Spring Training! Gus can't wait to watch baseball in HD with his mommy!

Not too much else going on. Mom and I are in major planning mode for the Scottish leg of our trip. We have booked 4 of 6 nights in B and B's and have an enquiry out to another place for the two remaining nights. On the Isle of Skye, we are staying at a B and B that has sheep and having our very own spinning demonstration by the mistress of the house. We are very excited. She also sells her own hand-spun, lichen dyed yarns!

I'm working on "lopi lace scarf" from Weekend Knitting in Silk Garden. It is much better looking than the scarf knit in Lopi in the book. I saw another such scarf on another blog and was inspired. Had I not seen that, I would have continued to pass by that pattern every time I looked through that book. Also working on Allison's super secret birthday gift---got to get moving-I've got five weeks to go. I'm planning on taking the drop spindle spinning class at Rosie's at the end of the month too. Busy busy busy.

Well, the Sixers are on in HD and I need to focus my attention on the tv.

I have been drooling over that Scottish Highland colorway for a long time. Nice to see something knit with it.

Hope you had your TV in time to watch my Payton Manning win the game! Very cool. Your trip sounds wonderful and I can't wait to hear all about it.
Eventually I'm going to have to buy STR yarn. I have avoided it thus far b/c I know I'll get totally hooked.
